On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m showing you how to make food in bulk and simplify your diet.
If you are not cooking in bulk, you are making your meal prep so much more effort than it needs to be.
When you make food in bulk, you not only spend less time in the kitchen preparing your meals, you also save time and effort on cleaning dishes.
I’ll prove this by showing you time saving examples of how to quickly prep your protein and vegetables in bulk, so you always have extra prepared food for future meals.
I’m going to prepare 1 meal and show you how to turn it into a 4 meals.
One of the fastest ways to cook your proteins in bulk, is the BBQ.
If time is an issue, buying pre-portioned grass fed beef patties is also an excellent time saver.
When it comes to prepping your vegetables fast, the food processor is one of your best friends when cooking in bulk.
This way you can shred up the vegetables fast, so they can be sauted quickly in some avocado oil whenever you want.
Simply store any of the unused raw shredded vegetables in a food container, and store in the fridge.
Then all you have to do is heat it up in a pan with avocado oil and add your favorite seasonings.
I use avocado oil as it is the best oil to use when cooking over high heat.
Here’s an example of a simple Bunless Burger and Sauted Vegetables meal prep recipe.
|Prep Time||5 minutes|
|Cook Time||10 minutes|
This is how simple it can be to cook your proteins and vegetables in bulk.
Simply add all the leftovers to food containers, and store them in the fridge so you can enjoy this meal again tomorrow.
Remember, your meals are intended to fuel your body, so they do not always have to look super delicious.
This meal provides a good source of healthy fats, protein, and fiberous carbohydrates from the vegetables.
Also for your calorie and macronutrient calculations, this meal is super easy to calculate.
All you have to take into account is the grass fed beef patty, which has the nutrition facts listed on the label.
The brown mustard and vegetables are a considered a zero calorie, free foods, so we don’t need to count that.
But we do count the calories from the tablespoon of avocado oil used to sautee the vegetables.
You also need to calculate the macadamia nuts as they are high in healthy fat.
Basically that is a straight forward and simple meal to calculate the calories and macronutrients.
Next time you follow a recipe, quadruple the recipe, and save yourself time by cooking in bulk.
Then store the leftovers in containers, in the fridge, then you’ll have food prepped and ready whenever you need it.
This is the simplified approach to your nutrition.
